Nothing new has shown up in the Vex forums so I am thinking this processor is pretty much unsupported and may be even dead.

Seems like I wasted my money buying this one. Does Vex have any plans of going forward with this ?
There's been some activity recently on the forums regarding the VEXPro...

The more important question - is Vex going to do anything more for the Vexpro ? Like trying to restore the Terk CMU pages ?

Most posts are from last year.
Biggest gap is for support of quad encoders, gyro, accel etc.

Since the VEXpro is NOT VRC Legal for Middle School and High School, there are only a few Hobbyist that have purchased one so far..

The Really Good news, is that the Too-Chain is Open source and free to Download..

Both Quazar and vexbot are working with the VEXpro, and you should confer with them if you have some ideas that you would like to develop.

Yep - let me know if you have any questions!

The quad encoders don't have official library routines yet, but they are trivial to use. There are four registers you can just directly read in your program that represent the count of encoders attached to the first 4 pairs of digital inputs.
